Xiaomi Unveils Redmi Note 7 with a massive 47MP Sensor, 6.3inch Screen and Costs Less than Ksh.15000 in Kenya

On paper, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 specs dwarfs several top of the line devices we’ve seen so far from the common denominators. It houses a massive sensor we’ve only seen on Nokia devices and a bezel-less display that has a water-drop notch – meaning everything has been minimized to furthest possible extent to achieve a 6.3inch display in an almost compact body. I’m not going to review this device at least at this point since we’re yet to put our hands on one; but it feels just right to mock specs we’ve seen on flagships from Samsung, Apple and Google – these are by the way unofficial bigwigs in the sector.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Specs

One would easily have guessed to expect half as good specs on the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 considering a rock-bottom price tag it carries, but let’s face it; this device is – assuming everything stays as announced, a potential contender for super users. At the same time, I wouldn’t want us to get over our heads, there’s so much that’s done in the background to achieve a super photo for example. A 47 sensor on its own wouldn’t do much, there’s a lot of software optimizations that has to be done that makes photos taken on the likes of iPhones pop at night and day alike.  

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Camera Sensor

While officially pulling the wraps off Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s CEO, noted the device to be the first of the new Redmi sub-brand. Since the biggest highlight of this handset was its massive sensor, let’s take a deeper look at the specs again. The Redmi Note 7 is actually the company’s first smartphone to come fitted with a 48MP camera sensor. And it’s not just any sensor, but one from a reputable manufacturer – Samsung’s ISOCELL GM1 sensor. We therefore don’t expect any let downs when in real-life action. Alongside, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 was its closest sibling – Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 pro with a similar sensor though from Sony.

Redmi Note 7 Display and Design

Besides the camera, turn on to the front side and you’ll be impressed by an almost full screen display complemented by a 2.5D curved design a glass.

Battery and Storage

The battery has 4,000 mAh capacity and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4. And as expected with phones coming out now, the Redmi Note 7 has a USB-C port which comes with a regular 5V/2A charger in the box, but you can add a fast-charging brick with an extra buck

It’ll come in some interesting colors that include Blue, Twilight Gold and Black. You’ll have various options of internal storage and ram; between one with 4GB with 64GB internal or 6GB RAM with 64GB storage. You can beef-up space with an external microSD, up to 256 GB.
